The U.S. Hispanic population, while still anchored in traditional settlement areas, continues to disperse across the U.S., according to a Pew Research Center analysis of U.S. Census Bureau data.
Today, about 75% of the nation’s Latino population are in California, Texas, Florida, New York, Illinois, Arizona, New Jersey and Colorado.
But with the dispersal of the U.S. Latino population across the country, this share is down from 79% in 2000 and 83% in 1990.
This finding is part of the Pew Research Center’s Hispanic population updates for every state and county, plus the 60 largest Hispanic metropolitan areas, as well as updated demographic and economic profiles of the Hispanic population for the states and those 60 metro areas.
See the newest maps at the Pew Hispanic Center’s Latinos by Geography page.
Among the key findings by state:
- More than half (55%) of the U.S. Hispanic population resides in three states: California, Texas and Florida. California has the nation’s largest Hispanic population, with about 14.4 million Hispanics. California’s Hispanic population alone accounts for more than one-fourth (28%) of U.S. Hispanics.
- New Mexico has the highest Hispanic population share (46.7% of the state’s population) among the 50 states and District of Columbia.
Among the key findings by county:
- The 10 largest counties by Hispanic population account for almost one-third (30%) of the country’s Hispanic population.
- Among all 3,143 counties in the U.S., 87 are majority Hispanic. Of those, 56 are in Texas.
Among the key findings by metropolitan area:
- More than four-in-ten (44%) Hispanics live in the 10 largest metropolitan areas by Hispanic population.
- The Los Angeles-Long Beach metropolitan area has the nation’s largest Latino population (5.8 million) and alone accounts for about 11% of Latinos nationally.
- In Miami, 66% of the Hispanic population is foreign born, a share higher than any of the top 60 metro areas and the only metro area in the top 10 in which more than half of Hispanics are foreign born. By contrast, only 17% of Hispanics in the San Antonio area are foreign born. For U.S. Hispanics overall, the foreign-born share is 36%.

Redes En Acción: The National Latino Cancer Research Network has released three videos on cancer issues and research methods that were used to train Redes En Acción researchers and patient navigators in Miami and San Antonio and Austin, Texas, who are involved in a study examining how patient navigators who use the LIVESTRONG Cancer Navigation Services Program can improve the quality of life of Latino breast, colorectal and prostate cancer survivors.
The videos are designed specifically for the study, funded by the National Cancer Institute; but the videos may be useful in any patient navigator studies involving Latinos.
Video 1 teaches researchers and patient navigators the proper steps on how to manage a potential mental health emergency or psychological related emergency that may arise during a survivor’s participation in the research study, as well as specific trainings on two cancer types, prostate and colorectal.
Video 2 covers various lectures related to the research project including: a project overview; a LIVESTRONG Cancer Navigation Center overview; a training on an online database; and research implementation overview.
Video 3 features a presentation on breast cancer.
